3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle at home. Pours a black choc colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is not overpowering, with molasses, caramel, coffee, chocolate. Medium chocolatey sweetness, light roasted malt bitterness, and just a little boozy kick at the end. Very smooth, in both flavour and carbonation, with a full-bodied feel to it. Very good.

330ml bottle. Almost completely black but with a deep red tint. Tan head and lots of lacing. Medium carbonation. Smells roasty. Taste like roasted malt, coffee & liquorice. It’s very dry but tastes good and has a long lasting taste. The best porter I’ve had from Porterhouse.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 Pour is brown black with a fizzy tan head that quickly disappears. Roasted malt, toffee, irish whiskey, oak and coffee in the aroma. Mouthfeel is slick, with a hint of carbonation in the body. Quite a heavy body. More warming Irish whiskey in the flavour, liquorice, with some background burnt malt which works very well. Finish is long and lush, with lots of lovely warming alcohol. Stunning.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Porterhouse Central. The beer pours a flat black color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a bit of dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, espresso and a touch of anise. The finish is roasty with a coffee and berry aftertaste. Above average overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle, pours black with a medium beige head. Aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate, light roast, and some feint butterscotch. Flavour of toffee / butterscotch, some dry roasted malt and bitter cocoa powder. Certainly not an impie, at least by North American standards, with a fairly restrained and a bit watery body. Quite a bitter finish, likely from the roast, which is quite harsh toward the end. All in all, a pretty boring stout.
